Vanessa Blanchette

(LCSW, CCTP, MSW)

About Me

My name is Vanessa Blanchette and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Wisconsin. I have over been working in the mental health field for over 15 years. I have counseled in various settings- first as a Crisis Counselor, then as therapist at the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin, and now as an outpatient counselor/therapist and Clinical Director of an outpatient clinic in Green Bay, Wisconsin for the past 5 years.

My approach is simple- to provide a safe space and non-judgmental environment for clients to bring their stories to. In order to do this, I bring many approaches to sessions with individuals, couples, and families because I believe that everyone's story is unique and each person deserves to have a safe space to share it. I incorporate a combination of different therapies & theoretical approaches, including existential therapy, mindfulness & Buddhist inspired psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, cognitive behavioral therapy, & attachment theory. I believe that humor and genuine empathy are also important tools that are helpful in a world that can often feel unfriendly, uncaring, & at times, to serious. My most recent trainings include trauma certification CTTP, Brainspotting, EMDR, and mindfulness trainings.

I feel very honored to have clients trust me with their stories and I look forward to sharing your journey with you!

Vanessa Blanchette has been a very good listener from the beginning. She knew very quickly what language to speak with me to help me understand myself in better ways. She is kind, smart but also very funny. She check up on me frequently and answer quickly. I am so glad i found her, she is really helping !

Vanessa does a great job of listening to my issues and reassuring me that however I'm feeling is completely valid. She validates your feeling while also being honest about how to move forward and what a healthy way to process things moving forward would be.

Vanessa listens well, understands my true concerns and helps me to think about things in a different, usually better, way! She has helped me a ton!

Vanessa has been more supportive and attentive to my needs than I could have ever imagined. I find it so helpful to receive messages throughout the week from someone with insight into my struggles. She has given me projects to work on through books and podcasts that allow me to feel like I’m making steps in a positive direction. This is great for someone like myself who takes pride in feeling like I’m accomplishing goals. I would without a doubt recommend Vanessa Blanchette and BetterHelp to anyone in need.
Thank you!
